Fremd 7 Day Forecast: Week of 3/15/2021


Jon Siemianowski, Aspiring Meteorologist


The third week in March will start off on a cold and slushy note before better weather arrives later in the week and just in time for the weekend. A storm system responsible for a lot of severe weather and snow already will bring a chance of heavy snowfall on Monday. While the snow will not accumulate much if any at all, it may still create travel problems and reduced visibility throughout the day on Monday. Cloudy skies will linger into Tuesday and eventually into Wednesday before another storm system passing to our south brings a chance of light rain Wednesday night into Thursday. Clouds will begin to break up by the time Friday comes around with periods of sun likely. Then temperatures start to rebound into the 50s Saturday with plentiful sunshine before temperatures climb into the 60s with continued sunshine on Sunday. 


Daily Forecast:
